OC Preseason All-State: Not our first viewing of Peters but it certainly will be the most lasting as he showed his overall abilities both at shortstop and on the bump combined with legitimate hitting skills. Sets up slightly open using a leg lift trigger before exploding off backside. Keeps hands in motion during setup and pairs them with leg lift getting his barrel on plane which he maintains through the zone. Hands are explosive. Easy to see high RBI, consistent gap power coming on his 5-foot-10, 160-pound frame. Defensively his actions are smooth and consistent. Backhand is pure while showing the ability to adjust to bad hop. Hands were quick on the turn. On the mound it was our best viewing of Peters as he appears to have increased command and velocity with more consistent mechanics. Touching 89 mph with his fastball it comes from an almost over-the-top slot on a downhill plane that he worked black-to-black. It’s tight and fairly straight showing the occasional hint of run. Curveball is sharp and tilts away from righties and will be a more than effective pitch. It was the changeup that showed the most improvement since last viewing. Coming from the same tunnel as the fastball there’s late depth and fade. While he touched 78 mph with the pitch, the action on the pitch was best noted at 76 mph. 


PBR CA STATE GAMES - Medium frame, long and lanky with projectable space for girth. Flashed two-way skills starting first game going two innings, striking out 1 and walking 1. Hands stay away from body through athletic, high front knee tuck with momentum down the hill; allows loose clean arm to work out of the glove with full swing from the elbow before H-3/4 release point. FB 81-84 having angle to the glove side; attacked with the pitch and looked to get ahead. CB/SLD 69-73 pitches blended velocity with varying shapes between 12/6 overhand breaking ball and short lateral action; both pitches showed tight spin and flashes of depth. CHG 76 bottom at the arm side. Liked his instincts on the mound and ability to cover his position making plays covering 1st base. At the plate starts tall and narrow with hand pump working hands deep and allowing him to gain ground on the front foot stride; compact flat swing flashing bat speed. Projectable frame and space for continued growth of the skills.


5-foot-8, 160-pound, long, lean, wiry strong build with some present lower half strength and projectable upper body strength on this squared shoulders. Twitchy, instinctive, athletic. Peters showed fluid footwork and athletic actions in the infield where he funnels balls out front seeing them in all the way. Tends to drag toe of back foot - may be a timing mechanism. Flashes an accurate arm with online throws from the shortstop spot. Tends to dive into balls at the plate from a slightly open stance. The bat is raw, but the hands work. Shows a middle approach. On the mound Peters shows a quick arm, easy effort delivery that has good projectability. He shows a rhythmic, athletic delivery with above average feel for all three pitches he throws.
